H-3 from K-Bay — HDOT says a full closure of the H-3 Freeway in the Honolulu-bound direction begins tonight at 9 p.m. until 4 a.m. on Monday, May 12. Crews will be replacing a viaduct expansion joint that crosses both Honolulu-bound lanes.


Work will require the removal of the existing expansion joint, installation of a replacement joint and concrete pouring. Expansion joints are used to fill gaps between viaduct segments to allow for the natural heat-related expansion and contraction of the concrete, which can reach 6 inches or more during the hottest and coldest hours of the day.

During the full closures, additional work crews will also be performing tunnel cleaning and maintenance work in the Honolulu-bound Harano Tunnel. Honolulu-bound motorists are advised to use the Likelike Highway or Pali Highway as alternate routes, adjust their commute times and expect delays.

10 / Saturday

Zip Line — The ZipperMobile will be testing in the westbound lanes of the H-1 Freeway Airport Viaduct between the H-1 on-ramp from Nimitz Highway (near Sand Island Access Road) and the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam off-ramp (Exit 15B), 6-10 a.m. During these hours, the ZipperLane will be deployed for equipment testing, closing the leftmost westbound lane, but the lane won’t be open to traffic. HDOT urges motorists to plan ahead and follow HDOT on social media for updates: #WZAM, #HiSafeZone.

15 / Thursday

Electricity Bolted — Installation of a new meter and associated devices at Fort Shafter will require a one-hour power outage, starting at 11 a.m.

Quacked Querquedule — There will be roadwork, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., today and tomorrow, at Schofield’s Duck Road at the portion that turns near Bldg. 2800. One lane of traffic will remain open during the work.


A‘la Kipuka— There will be full road closures at Fort Shafter Flats’ Loop and Annex roads for utility and flood mitigation structures installation. Loop Road will be closed in both directions, from the Loop and Stream roads intersection to just west of the gate for Bldg. X1508.

The primary detour for Loop Road will be Mokumoa Street. Annex Road will be closed in both directions, from the Loop and Stream Road intersection to the intersection of Signal Street and Stream Road. Closures for both Loop and Annex Roads will be through Feb. 28, 2015. (Editor’s note: A‘la Kipuka translates to Loop Road.)

Pu‘u Hapapa — Schofield’s Pu’u Hapapa Loop closes at its intersection with Kolekole Avenue, 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m., weekdays (except holidays), until May 19. Traffic on Pu’u Hapapa will be for local traffic only. Through traffic along Kolekole will be maintained with flaggers controlling traffic for alternating flow. The road closure and lane closure are necessary for the Design/Build contractor on the Kalakaua Phase 3 Neighborhood Housing Project to install a new drain line across Pu’u Hapapa Loop.

Speed Bumps — Portions of Schofield’s Leilehua Avenue will be closed to install traffic-calming devices. All side roads off Leilehua will be open during construction.

A full road closure of Leilehua, which began Wednesday, will continue until May 29, at a portion near Dawson and a portion near McAndrew Road.

Another full road closure takes place, May 30-June 23, at a portion near Kline and a portion near Baldwin.
